Teaching Scholars Program

TSP offers an intesive series of learning experiencesThe Teaching Scholars program develops educational leaders and scholars through an intensive seminar series, mentored projects, a network of educational colleagues, and collaborative learning.

We are excited to announce that the 21-22 TSP cohort will have a focus on anti-racism and anti-oppression scholarship.  As a result, we will select TSP applicants who teach GME learners in core-clerkship departments: anesthesia, family and community medicine, medicine, neurology, obstetrics/gynecology, pediatrics, psychiatry, and surgery, as well as applicants from the schools of dentistry, nursing, pharmacy, and physical therapy. NOTE: To form the 21-22 TSP cohort, the selected applicants will join Curricular Component Liaisons (CCLs) who are being recruited separately to work on the Bridges Anti-Oppressive Curriculum (AOC).

The program models the goals that it has for the learners including providing a research base for the content and exemplifying various teaching strategies selected to match the content. The participants should finish the program with a scholarly product that has been submitted for peer review.

Beginning in 2022, applicants must hold a Teach for UCSF Certificate in General Teaching to apply for the Teaching Scholars Program.
